It all depends on what your idea of fantastic is. MacBook - not so fantastic really. iPhone - ok its fantastic, but thanks to the damn device data plan charges are likely to rise.

I wonder if the netbook was due to people screwing the computer up more than anything.

I've only gone the Hackintosh on VM Ware route (which works well except for sound), but from what I read one can screw up a machine if an OSx86 install isn't done correctly.

Either way Apple may not have the exclusion market cornered, but they are the leader by a vast margin.

agree about apple being too exclusive. practically cost them their business by the end of the 90s. ipod and itunes saved the company. I use parallels to run windows on my mac and it works pretty well so i essentially have both machines now.

As for the MacBook, I have a high end MacBook Pro and it is quite a beast. It costs a small fortune but I no longer need a desktop computer. In my work i use massive excel spreadsheets (500 columns x 50,000 rows) and to mess with them, stream a show from here and argue with you about computers at the same time.....fantastic.

have a good evening clash.
